The value and influence of research published by ecological scientists in the Ecological Society of America’s (ESA) journals was reflected today in Thomson Reuters 2015 Journal Citation Reports, as all five peer-reviewed publications receiving rankings made appreciable impact factor gains. ESA congratulates our editors, authors, and referees. We are honored to continue to host high-quality research and analysis from the ecological community

Ecological Monographs, ranked 7th in the ecology category, rose to 8.037 from its 2014 impact factor of 6.98. Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment, ranked 5th in ecology and 3rd in environmental sciences, also rose significantly, from an impact factor of 7.441 in 2014 to 8.504 in 2015. Ecology (4.733), Ecological Applications (4.252), and Ecosphere (2.287) all enjoyed modest gains in impact factor.
